, the ballot initiative process in california is so famous. i do want to say that california had a couple of controversial ones here, 1, they did not vote down the death penalty, still allowed in california. 2, it looks like they passed a tax measure to make california the most taxed state in the union. so that's controversial here in california. a bit of a surprise, considering the economy here in the golden state isn't the best. but you mention the process, the ballot process across the country. yes, definitely, same-sex marriage and marijuana both faired very well at the ballot box. maine passed it, as well as maryland and washington, all passing referendums, allowing for same-sex marriage. they legalized it again in maine, maryland and washington, and an amendment to vote against it in minnesota is too close to call at this hour. meantime, to the medical marijuana front, we know that two big states here that passed the medical marijuana were -- lost you here, montana. and in oregon, it's failing. the interesting vote with marijuana was the fact that colorado and washington allowed it
, illinois, california, and new york, the democrats are going to pick up 104 electoral college there and they did nothing there except go there for fund-raisers. that just shows you how sure we have of these states that are so blue and so red. but it's those nine states that we're talking about. that's what it's going to come down to, those nine battleground states and they are all-- with the possible exception of ohio-- all within the margin of error right now. >> pelley: norah, what do you see going into election tonight? >> one of the things i think is interesting is how much of the country has voted today before election day, the so-called early vote. it's been growing over the years. today we've seen more than 30 million people have turned out at the polls. interestingly enough, scott, the battleground state where this early vote has turned out. look at this. colorado, 77% has already voted. nevada. 72%. north carolina, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the result
in chairman's role on the house side. ed royce from california wants job and so does chris smith from new jersey, who has a little more security -- a lot more security, but his advocacy for human rights -- fighting human rights is actually a negative among some of his colleagues, so to his record last time he got to chair a committee, the normally obscure veterans affairs committee, he went counter to republican orthodoxy and kept advocating for spending more and more money on veterans programs and basically kept him out. those are two others. >> i should point out that one committee that also will have the same chairman but will be inserting in the public's fear and possibly over health care is oversight and government reform, headed by darrell issa. he will be there for at least one more term. he has promised robust oversight of the obama administration. >> i am sure he has. speaking of oversight that is one of the few places on the senate side where they -- no, speaking of government -- homeland oversight? >> tom carper is set to take over that panel. joe lieberman is retiring and susa
.c. for a while, moved to california. i was married for a while in california and then i moved to washington and i wasn't married again, and now i'm about to get married again. [laughter] so, thank you. hopefully it's the same guy. don't forget that. [laughter] >> you don't get gifts every time he there. that's problem. so i did have this very, i certainly had a personal stake in that so i was very pleasantly surprised him outside and i do think also, i want to look at this deeper but it feels to me like this time the disconnect between the power of voting and the actual voting wasn't as big as it was in the past which just the extent that people were saying different things, if that ever was true, it feels like in this race are polling suggested that was kind of the margin and we won by the margins that were fairly close to the polling and i think if that's true that's very good news for us as we go forward with this kind of thinking. i think there was a tendency to feel that we had to really get very high numbers and so that was good news. >> that was let -- i was less confident about the racin
profound if you live in a glass house cast no stones. we've been joined by laura richardson from california. thank you for joining us here. this very unqualified woman of course spear headed efforts to bring the international sanctions against i ran, sanctions on -- iran, sanctions on north korea and has brought significant to bringing down kadafi. we now are going to hear from a very special colleague, terri sule from the seventh district of alabama. she has very special insight into the qualifications and integrity of susan rice. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. today i stand with my colleagues, proudly stand with my colleagues in expressing our outrage about the unfair attacks against the u.s. ambassador susan rice. these recent attacks are nothing short of offensive. nothing short of offensive. leading the charge to oppose ambassador rice are our senators who profess to want to block any potential nomination of this overly qualified public serve ant. and i for you cannot sit back like all of us and not say this is wrong. it's not only wrong, it's actually unpatriot i can. to b
people into jobs that are opening. there's a reason san diego, california is the human genome capital of the world. same deal, public, private, foundations, people working together. ever since the tea party took over the republican party -- >> boo! >> ever since the tea party took over the republican party, they say it's my way or the highway, we're right all the time. they've beat the distinguished republican senator from indiana, richard luger, their most important foreign policy spokesperson because he was attacked by his opponent for cooperating with president obama on national security. they're nominee actually said, i couldn't make this up, that his happiest day was when he was imposing his opinion on someone else and he wanted the people to send him to washington, so that he could have more partisanship in washington, d.c. now if you want it, you can have it. the people of indiana don't want it, congressman joe donnelly his opponent was ahead by 11 points in the most recent polls, you're going to change that. but it will all be for naught if you reward him by not electing presi
generations. as governor he compete with other states for jobs and subsidies are relatively easy. california -- [laughter] anybody from california? california, illinois, connecticut, thank you. but those states are doing is raising taxes, raising regulations and so that's, you know, we are competing. but we do every day is to try and find companies out there that can't compete. i think about simply if you're a business come to think of yourself as a consumer. as a consumer, name the time did the research yourself, i think i'll pay more for the project because i know that company is headquartered in a high tax state. or gosh, i know they have more regulations saw pay more for the product because i know cost the company more for more regulations or takes longer to get a permit. you don't do it. so if we make sure that florida businesses have lower taxes, less regulation and faster permitting time, a pro-business attitude to our businesses will outcompete everybody and will get more jobs and that's what we're doing every day. in contrast, my biggest competitor is texas. texas has been doing the
of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winter in florida. -- the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we plan 4, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same% of the electorate as in 2008. we got if you got% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, boating rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battle ground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino v
's exhausted, understandably so. leon panetta who come phaout commutes from washington to california he wants out. he's over 70 and wants to row tire. timothy geithner the treasury secretary wanted out a while ago and was pressed to say. i would think in the case of panetta and clinton that republicans will be unhappy to see them go because they are pretty popular up on capitol hill, a lot of respect for both of them. obviously hillary clinton with the libya situation there is some criticism there, generally speaking i think conservatives have been happy with a liberal democratic president having people like hillary clinton and panetta running national security. geithner not as popular with conservatives. and eric holder definitely because of fast and furious and other policies not as popular with conservatives. martha: it race raises the questions in all four of those spots, who do you think are some of the names that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state
society organizations which also features the involvement of the university of california san diego. working with the local communities to rethink and refrain the perceptions and understanding of neighborhood security so there are a lot of bottom-up approach is in changing the securities sector. in addition to the high level of policies that we have been discussing such as the initiatives for the police. >> okay. let's take this as our final question and then one more large question to pose to the panel before we break. >> my name is jason, an independent researcher and consultant on issues around policing and the conflict. my question is aimed primarily at bob and i will tweak it for to tunisia. i'm glad he mentioned his paper. it highlighted the problems and the challenges in libya conducting a light footprint and not the kosovo or afghanistan model with hundreds of thousands of people on the ground. and what sort of pushed the democratization and the ssr forward. so i guess the question for bob is what are the considerations to be engaged the conflict, post conflict ssr. what can
that this be similar to gay marriage proposition in california, people told pollsters one thing, but in privacy of voting booth diddin something different, you have a lot of people that voted for barack obama first time who will not admit, that they are not voting for him again, they say yes, but when they get in polling place, they will say country before party, he had us for 4 years, he is gone. lou: idea that, president obama has reestablished momentum following, hurricane sandy, and all of the damage it has done, in this part of the country, how much weight to you give to governor christie embracing the president over it, and thanking him, thanking them for a job that is right now as president likes to use expression, incomplete. >> income plight, you know, i don't give it any credit, there is a -- part of the equation that is missing, people think that tea party have disappeared, nobody talks about how tea party kay out in force, we have not had a reason to get back out and march in streets. the tea party is till have. they are coming out in force, and i am telling you now this will be a d
flew, you know, power equipment from california onmilitary aircraft into the area. so we're doing everything we can. this was an unprecedented storm, and obviously it's impacted so many people on the eastern seaboard. and it's going to take a while to recover. so we're going to be there, each and every day. you know, we've made a lot of progress. not enough. i think everyone would attest. until everyone has been reached and gotten assistance, we get all the power on, the work continues. but i think fema has done an outstanding job. the president obviously has been working on this intensively. and our local leaders, governor christie and mayor bloomberg, governor comeau and governor malloy, and all of the local officials are doing everything they can obviously because people are suffering and hurting out there, and we've got to stand by them and make sure we stay on this until the job gets done. >> let me take you back to political handicapping here in the time two days. you've heard our latest numbers as the polling, a one-point edge for president obama in the national head-to-hea
to the whole question of whether states must grant same sex marriage. that's the big california case, the prop 108 case and less certain the court will take that case, i think. those are the two biggies that we'll watch. we may or may not find out on friday whether they will take them. we'll find out friday or the following monday. >> there is also some late breaking news in just the past hour. immediate challenges after the president's health care law became law. what's this latest announcement about? >> this is one of the first challenges to the law actually filed before the supreme court rule. this was brought by liberty university, a christian college in virginia that claims the employer mandate, the individual mandate violate religious freedom. what the supreme court basically said is we're not going to address the merits of the case. we're not saying whether you're right or wrong. we're simply saying the off ramp that the federal appeals court put the case on was the wrong one. try again. it gives liberty university a chance to go back to the trial court and start all over again. the oba
imagery dropping down into northern california, as well. so the garden hose is out and it's coming down pretty good. portland up i-5 across the river, vancouver up to seattle, this is heavy at time. snow levels will be rising over the next couple days. mostly going to be a flood event. flood watches for most of western oregon including parts of northern and eastern parts of washington. snow levels rising. rainier, some higher peaks will get some serious snow. but the winds also blowing. look at these recorded wind gusts. yaquina head, 98-mile-per-hour gust. that is hurricane strength you betcha. and this is the time of year where they get their windstorms and they're getting it pretty good. a three-day event expected there. mostly northern california through vancouver, b.c., so cal looks good. much of the inner mountain west looks good as well. a weak front through central parts of the u.s., kansas city through st. louis, pretty weak, but it will have some showers there and fog across the great lakes if you're travelling there. breezy across parts of the carolinas and a little bit of sh
and no state income tax and look at california as a case study they've lost 350,000 people to texas alone in the last 10 years. texas is growing, california is a disaster. a case study in disaster. >> congressman ryan, a hance to jump in. >> i think it's difficult to make a comparison between the oil bust, which is a commodity based product which can get caught up in different complications, versus the auto industry. i think it's a difficult comparison. but the auto restructuring package has worked and it's benefiting hubbard, ohio, and other areas where many people who work at general motors benefit from that. so it as the position on chinese steel that the president has taken that has benefited youngstown and gerard and many other people who work in that area. i take issue with him saying there's a lack of federal resources in texas. nasa has made huge investments in texas. many businesses in texas benefit from investments in the united states military. throughout the entire state of texas, i think if you look at many of the universitys in texas, they get a bode load of money from the r

: and it matters how california looks and how nevada looks and virginia looks. >> right. >> reporter: it is difficult for mitt romney to say that the economy is in free fall. it is not. sue heads the iowa democratic party. >> the president won by ten percentage points in the last election, so, sue, why can't he lock it down right now, it is neck and neck. >> well, we feel like we are lock it down. we have been lockingt down for two years. >> i think that she is selling you something to be honest with you. i don't feel it is in lockdown. >> reporter: we found plenty of iowans who are not convinced by either campaign. >> i don't see fiscally how we can sustain ourself, because europe right now and the huge empire countries are going bankrupt. it is going to be us. >> reporter: and orthodonnist chad morarend thinks that the deficit is not enough for either side. >> i don't think that either side has a plan. it is the lesser of two evils. >> reporter: back at creighton medals, he says he cannot expand. he says he is frozen about whether we fall off of the fiscal cliff. >> i need reassura
